All tag results for outrage
The Catholic Church accepts everyone — that is, everyone that isn't disabled.
At least that's how Clare Ellarby feels! The British mom claims her 7-year-old son wasn't allowed to take his first Holy Communion because he has Down Syndrome.
The Diocese of Leeds wrote Clare a letter explaining that her son, Denum Ellarby, lacks the "concentration" to take part. The letter explained that members of the church can:
"only proceed to the sacrament of First Communion when they take part in the Church's life and understand the Church's faith".
Obvi, Clare is hurt and outraged by her church. She says:
"I feel really let down by the Catholic faith. They need to have more compassion. What they are doing is so cruel."
Since she spoke out the church has released a statement trying to turn it around on the Ellarbys. They claim they didn't reject Denum because he has Down Syndrome, they rejected him because his parents are bad Catholics. Citing that,
"Denum's family has not participated in the regular life of the Church or in the preparation preceding First Communion. We hope that this will change as Denum grows and we are working with him and his family to help him achieve this."
We sincerely hope this really is an isolated incident.
Otherwise, Glee is sure to use this as inspiration for an episode!!
And rightfully so!
Jennifer Hudson may have lost about 80 pounds since releasing her self-titeled debut album in 2008, but that doesn't mean she looked bad before!
Record executives, on the other hand, felt it was necessary to alter her waistline on the album cover WITHOUT Jennifer's permission to sell more copies.
Four years later, the Academy Award winning actress and singer STILL hasn't forgiven them for sending such a superficial message to her fans. During Sunday's Dateline interview, Jennifer explained>:
And we thought those Abercrombie Kids padded push up bikini tops were bad.
A clothing store in Greeley, Colorado called Kids 'N Teen has pissed off a lot of parents for selling crotchless panties. The store has only been open for about 2 weeks and the owner says they're still trying to figure out what to sell.
Here, we'll help you out: don't sell crotchless panties for kids!
Luckily, the inappropriate undies were promptly pulled from the Kids 'N Teen shelves, but only after receiving complaints.

A couple weeks, porn-star-turned-legit-actress Sasha Grey was invited to Emerson Elementary School in Compton to read to children.
Parents were OUTRAGED when they found out about this, so as a the school started to deny it ever happened.
But now the district is finally admitting that the actress that won the AVN Award for "Best Three-Way Sex Scene" for her work in F**k Slaves did read to kids.
According to our source they were led to believe she was a mainstream actress. An official says talent coordinator informed the school Grey's calling card was an appearance on Entourage.
The district says from here on out they'll stay clear of any "controversial figures."
Instead of a background check we suggest a simple google search. It might even be fun!

Why were these parents so angry? They don't like Dr. Seuss??? LOLz!
Last week, porn-star-turned-legit-actress Sasha Grey was invited to Emerson Elementary School in Compton to read to children.
Parents were OUTRAGED when they found out about this, so as a result the school's been trying to cover it up.
What do you get when a bunch of angry and (presumably) drunk Penn State students have a little get together in honor of Joe Paterno?
Armored police dispersed 2,000 students who gathered in the streets of Not-So-Happy Valley after they learned that their beloved Joe Pa had been fired.
Before police were able to control the situation, the angry mob managed to
join hands in peaceful protest topple a news truck and pelt a photographer with rocks!
